Nat goes into her work at the local pub one day and discovers that her best friend Beth is missing. According to the barmistress Janine, Beth has just decided to move on. But to Nat this makes no sense, especially since she took nothing with her and didn’t tell Nat about her plans. Since Nat is convinced foul play was involved and something awful has happened to Beth, she sets out to prove it and to convince the local police that Beth did not leave of her own accord. While Nat is conducting her own investigation, she puts herself in danger. There are so many characters in this book that are potential suspects that Nat’s chance of success looks dim. My favorite character is a ninety plus man named Victor who is in no small way one of the heroes of the book. This novel starts out rather slowly, and I was not sure what to make of the almost stream of consciousness style, but it was well worth staying with it to the end. The more I read, the more I realized that I didn’t want to quit reading until the surprise conclusion. This is a whodunit with a villain that the reader never sees coming, so it is not only a surprise, it is a shock!
